Pascal. We cannot answer your questions all the time, others are looking for what they are interested in. There's a big internet out there try researching and perhaps you could give us some information, and bring some new material to forum. We can see you have a great interest in this subject but you post far to fast. And the end members will stop looking at your posts. No disrespect intended. Idea

The solution it may be that ?

During the mustering for the Zulu war,,all the Natal Volunteers received two bandoliers of ammunitions...But in many volunteers units,by the time the first invasion commenced,Many crafty Declined to cross in Zululand and Remained on the border for Patrolling ...

So may be, they were obliged to render their bandolliers?

Cheers

Hi Pascal,

The question you raise about how many bandoliers or rounds were carried is difficult to answer as it varied by unit and by mission.
I know in the case of the NMP 70 rounds was the norm, increasing to 140 rounds on the Dartnell Patrol. These quantities are notwithstanding the extra ammunition that many troopers ferreted on their persons "for insurance".


regards,,

Hello Barry

But can I wear a belt pouch with two bandoliers, impossible!

A belt pouch + a bandolier around the waist ?

And a bandolier, there are 50 or 70 cartridges ?

There were different models bandoliers ?...

Cheers

Barry,

you believe that there have not been enough Bandolier for all the volunteers, because the police was a priority?
